New term used to describe stagnance. Lack of movement forward or backward. Term can also be used to express melancholy.
The illustrious Thad Senti once posed a question to a colleague - "If progress is moving forward, and regress is moving backwards, what is "gress"? Roy Pereira answered - Stability, no movement, as in 'How are you doing?', reply - 'Just gressing'.
"Your performance has really gressed this year" (performance has neither improved nor gotten worse)
"During the course of this meal, I have noticed that that rock climber has been gressing" (Whilst eating this scrumptious meal the rock climber has neglected to move).
"I must say that I believe your defibulator is broken, as the patient's condition has gressed despite the constant shocks you have been administering" (the patient is dead, please stop shocking him/her).
"How are you doing?" "Gressing, how 'bout you?"
